Shouldn't think so. The differences are pretty minor. In fact, I'm curious why the OP is upgrading from one X58 board to another.
The most significant difference I see is that the Deluxe uses a Marvell controller for the PATA interface (and other things), while the vanilla P6T uses JMicron. It might be a good idea to uninstall the JMicron drivers
before the swap. I doubt that it's necessary, though, unless your boot drive is on that controller. Probably unecessary, even then.
